We probably agree that CNN is the 'least worst'.
Still can't blindly trust them ... but are 'least worst'.
At the risk of sounding like Dale Gribble, that's what they want you to think. CNN is THE
The three main MSM outlets are all part of the propoganda wing of the military industrial complex. Fox and MSNBC spout the more extreme views of the
left and right, peppered with distortions and outright lies. Some people may take them seriously, but their primary function is to make CNN look
unbiased by comparison.
CNN is where the real "programming" takes place.
"You're a reasonable person. That's why you're watching us instead of those extremist news outlets. Now, as a reasonable person, here is what
you should think ..."
Instead of focusing on the differences between Fox, CNN, and MSNBC, look at some of the issues they all seem to agree on.
All three support any war against any country Israel doesn't like. All three avoid reporting any human rights violations committed by Israel.
All three avoid any negative press when it comes to Monsanto, insurance companies, or pharmecuetical companies. (Hint: watch their commercials. Who
pays for these?)
All three will express disdain for "conspiracy theorists." Derogatory names like "birther", "denier", "teabagger", etc. flow freely. They
never report on things like the Builderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations, or Bohemian Grove.
All three will tell you that this country can't survive without an international banking cartel controlling our currency, or a rigged stock
All three will give you months of coverage about the latest shooting in a gun free zone, but very little coverage on the near weekly murders committed
by law enforcement.
All three will vilify whislteblowers that expose criminal acts committed by the government.
All three have been caught lying, but as a great detective said, you can learn more from a lie than the truth.
